Classics (Aphex Twin album)

Classics is an electronic music compilation album by Richard D. James, more commonly known by his pseudonym of Aphex Twin (credited here as The Aphex Twin). The album was released in December 1994 (see 1994 in music).

The album consists of the Digeridoo and Xylem Tube EPs combined onto one CD with a handful of other songs. The album contains James' signature acid house sensibilities. It mostly features repetitive tracks performed on analogue synthesizers and drum machines, with some rather harsh-sounding remixes of Mescalinum United's "We Have Arrived". It was released by R&S Records following James' success on Warp Records.

A remastered version of the album was released June 2 2008.

Notes

  • "Isopropanol" is an extended mix of "Isopropophlex" from James's Analogue Bubblebath.
  • "Analogue Bubblebath 1" is extended by a few seconds from its original version, with a different ending.
  • "Tamphex" contains looping samples from a television advertisement for Tampax.
  • This album was chosen as one of Q magazine's 50 heaviest albums of all time in July 2001, noted for its crunching, metallic malevolency.
  • "We Have Arrived (Aphex Twin QQT Mix)" was later re-released on the remix compilation 26 Mixes for Cash.
